    Severe Weather Web quest

    Severe weather can happen anytime, in any part of the country. Severe weather can include hazardous conditions produced by thunderstorms, including damaging winds, tornadoes, large hail, flooding and flash flooding, and winter storms associated with freezing rain, sleet, snow and strong winds.

    Process

    1.  Each of you will become an expert in several types  of severe weather.  The head meteorologist, (Mrs.Clause), will give you your weather assignments , your job is to find out what each type of weather is and how it is formed, how much damage it does and costs, safety precautions to take, and the biggest recorded storm of that nature.
    2.  As you are doing your research, you will record the information in the  Severe Weather recording booklet you were given. (All sections must be completed!!)
    3.  Now you are ready to research! Follow the links and watch the videos to complete each section in your report form. When you are finished with each section you must have it check by one of our meteorologist (aides, or Mrs. Clause).
    4. Pick one of the four extreme weather conditions . Now that you have decided, you must design a poster to present to the company.  The poster must include what the weather is, amount of damage and cost, safety precautions, and biggest recorded storm(s).  Remember to include pictures! Do your best work because it will be graded and displayed.
